Throughout the week, we update our Best New Songs playlist with the new releases that caught our attention the most, be it a single leading up to the release of an album or a newly unveiled deep cut. And each Monday, we round up the best new songs released over the past week (the eligibility period begins on Monday and ends Sunday night) in this best new music segment.
On this week’s list, we have Soccer Mommy’s new single ‘Shotgun’, which is at once intoxicating and vulnerable, exploding into soaring choruses without quite disguising its melancholy; Jane Inc.’s hooky, propulsive new track ’2120’; ‘Skinty Fia’, the ominous, mutating title traxk from Fontaines D.C.’s upcoming LP; Let’s Eat Grandma’s irresistibly euphoric latest single ‘Levitation’; ‘Lost’, the strikingly epic first offering from Zola Jesus’ next album; ‘Jealous’, an emotional highlight from Camp Cope’s just-released third album; ‘Warm Chris’, the enchantingly intimate title track from Aldous Harding’s new LP; and ‘Gold Chain Punk (whogonbeatmyass?)’, the pummelling, furiously chaotic opener to Soul Glo’s landmark new record.
